Link to webpages or outside resources

Don't re-create the wheel! Promote website content through your App!

Pro-Tip:  Make a form into a Mobile-App "Page" that links to your website or any outside resource. All you need is an image, some text, and a link! 

For example, link to sermon notes, announcements, an about-us page, or anything else you'd like to promote. The sky's the limit!

Step 1: Create Your Form and Add a Link

  1. Go to Forms, select Start From Scratch, give your form a name - then click Create. 
  2. At the top right, click on the “Gear” icon to open Form Properties and access the Form Description Area.
  3. In the Description Area, include some brief text. Take advantage of the provided tools to style your content.
  4. Highlight the text you’d like to link to a web page, click the ‘chain-link’ icon, and input the web address of the page you’d like to link to. 

 

Step 2: Add an Image

  1. Forms appear best in your Mobile App when they include an image.
  2. Use the provided image upload button to select an image for your form.

Pro-Tip: Images should be 1000 x 562 pixels wide. (Generally, a 16x9 ratio works well). If you include text, work to keep the text centered. Some images in your app are cropped to a square ratio and text might appear cut off if it's too wide.

 

Step 3: Ensure the Correct "Form Category" is selected.

A Form Category determines where a form will appear in your Mobile App.

  1. After adding an image or text, scroll down until you see the Form Categories heading. 
  2. Select "Event Registration" if you want to display this Form under the Events or Discover Modules. Select "Contact Form" If you want to use it under the "Contact" Module. 

Note: Forms categorized as Event Registration don't require a date, but it can be helpful to order them sequentially or automatically hide them after the date has passed. If you don't add a date, your forms will be ordered based on the date you created them.

 

Step 4: Update the Submit Button Text

Even if your form has no fields, the "Submit" button will always appear on the form page itself. (When tapped, it simply takes a visitor back to the previous screen). It's a best practice to change the text to something more intuitive for your visitors.

  1. Within "Form Properties," click the Submission Tab.
  2. At the top left, change the text of the Submit button to "Back," "Got It!," or other creative text.
